    BTW, don't you want reverse stagger? Wider in the front? Audi did it on the S3. Kill the understeer.

    Staggered wheels will have a different rolling diameter front to back. So you don't want any stagger...

    However, I trust what Audi did. And I'm sure they had a lot more R&D go into it than just pulling wheels and tires off a shelf like the average consumer. And yes, if you were to have stagger you would want "reverse" stagger on an awd vehicle.

    No, they won't necessarily. Stagger typically refers to wheel width. I've gone over this in depth in other threads. Perfect matchup in diameter will be hard and rolling speed may be off as much as 1% and can put unneeded work on the center differential. Furthermore under low traction conditions, wheelslip will occur at different thresholds.

    Exaclty, a typical "staggered" setup would be something like, 17x9 with 255/40/17 rear, 17x8 225/40/17 front. Even greater difference in width in most cases. They would have different rolling diameters front to rear. And like you said, it would be hard to match them up perfectly.

    Not sure if I'm being agreed with or shot down based on Rambo's reaction LOL.

    Can you link that thread your talking about Zax?
